    Who dumps their GRACO

    Just wondering if anyone unscrews their Graco strainers and dump them out after riding. It holds water even after the "blow out" trailer run. i do this in addition to a quick fog because i really don't know how soon or how long i can ride again.

    Only time I unscrew mine is when it gets clogged.

    Same here. Just worry about screwing up the oring and creating a leak somehow.

    ah. good idea to at least have extra o rings in that thing. I check almost everytime I stop and can take the seat out and reach it easily. never know what you suck up, and i think you won't know until it's too late that the screen is clogged.

    what will happen if the screen is mostly clogged, letting only a small water flow through? this is for an rxp.

    Won't take long... and your exhaust over temp sensor will throw an alarm, start beeping, and put you into limp mode. If your lucky... your sensor won't melt off, and fall out of the water box
